Mental note: after the holidays, make an Optimus Primal tribute vid set to this vid. (NWS for F-bombs.)

It just... kind of occurred to me that I can do things like that now.

Meme from (dw)merfilly.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something, and has lost something.
Give me a name and I will tell you what that person is afraid of, loves, and has lost.


Y'all know my fandoms.

Another meme!

Picking a favorite character for me is a lot like picking a favorite child. I flail around a lot and can't do it. So why did I sign up for this one? ...Well, because Ravyn is my crack dealer, that's why. ;P

Reply and I'll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.

And she demands: Transformers (duh), The Pretender (YAY! another Pretender fan!), Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Harry Potter.

She calls, I answer. )

...I need a jump-start on my writing engine. Plus I've just wanted to do this. It's the OC Meme, stolen from (lj)beckyh2112! :D Prompt me and I'll write a drabble featuring one of my OCs for you.

The Rules:
- Prompt as many as you want, but I only promise one drabble per person. You may get more, depending on if your prompts ping me.
- Include a scenario/song lyric/emotion/some sort of inspiration, and a faction or side if the fandom calls for it. (Autobot/Decepticon/Maximal/Predacon/neutral, Keybearer/Heartless/Nobody, Shinra/Avalanche/Jenovite, Turtles/Foot... well, check the tags if you don't know my fandoms. XD)
- If you like, you may prompt a specific OC that you already know of.

Just wanted to drop some links before I went, now that Three Weeks for DW is over.

Untitled fanmix - various TF pairings

Spike and Carly's thank-you note dilemma, inspired by (lj)l_shades's Communique series. <3

And, a brief Galvatron/Roddy ship manifesto, because it was requested and because I like to blather about my pet pairing.

Why do I do this to myself?

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Have joined (dw)three_weeks_for_dw. I've a sort of idea to finish up the next three pages of KH:MH - you all would have to go to DW to see them, HORRORS, but maybe I'd get some TF and KH friends over there. ^_^

Or, I could do some skibbles. Or a fanmix. Or I could write Jon Stewart vs. the Decepticons. (Anyone see the Epic Pwn Gospel Choir this past week? This is what I'm thinkin'. ;D)

Also, a quizthing from newsy891, because what the hell. )

Oh, why not.

Another meme! Because why the hell not. It's not like I've got anything else going on. XD This is from (lj)straya, though she used fancier HTML.

in character.
◢ ask any of my characters (listed or not! ) a question. ask them anything you want, regardless of knowing their canon (or even if you don't RP!)
◢ feel free to ask them as your own character, if you want. either way, your question might be returned with one of their own, if they feel so inclined.
◢ it's totally encouraged for you to tag with your own character.

I figure y'all know my fandoms by now. XD

Feeling a bit insulted? Well, maybe.

Geez, what is up with all the fanfiction hate on (lj)metaquotes lately? It's like every time something even remotely related to fandom gets quoted, everybody feels the need to pile on in a Great Big Wankfest of Superiority.

I'M SORRY WE EXIST, INTERNETS. I'M SURE YOUR HOBBIES ARE MUCH MORE WORTHY OF RESPECT THAN OURS.

Old plotbunnies don't die, they just give you something to skibble at work.

My scanner's still not working, but fortunately, Dad has a shiny working scanner upstairs. Unfortunately, it made my tentacle!Roddy skibble ug-ly and I'm not going to re-scan it tonight. I'll get it up tomorrow.

So here are two others to hold you over 'til then. )

And they wonder why I spend all my time in the basement.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Having another one of those 'feeling like a waste of carbon' nights. No trigger, just. Old friend self-loathing, come for a visit. You know it's time to up your meds when the only reason you can think of for continuing to exist is so you don't stick your parents with your student loans.

I spent a good portion of my afternoon shift drawing Hot Rod with tentacles. No, I don't know why. I'll post it tomorrow assuming my scanner decides to work. You're welcome.

Screw you, real life. I have fandom.

No sooner do I overcome my common sense and express interest in becoming a writer for GirlGamer.com, than I get an email inviting me to a Power Rangers RP. And it's one that I was contemplating before, so I already have a character in mind, but oh god I can't take on even one more thing. Let alone two. My brain, you guys. My poor braaaaiiiin. ;_;

...speaking of my poor brain and being stretched thin. I don't have either springkink fic written that's due tomorrow, and I need to go to bed soon 'cause I have work at seven AM tomorrow. I... think at least one's gonna be late. *whimperthud*

Aaaand some fandom-related angstmongering, just to round things out. )

I've crossed the streams something awful, you guys. XD

So there are big tanks full of green liquid in Team Galactic Headquarters in Pokemon Diamond. My brain, of course, went straight to 'Mako tubes' and now I'm picturing a Pokemon!Sephiroth running around in a cloud of Mewtwo-like angst. It doesn't help that I already have a bitty Pokemon-trainer OC in my head, yo.

The enemy SEPHIROTH used SKEWER!

A critical hit!

AERIS fainted!


---------or---------


FANGIRL used SLASH!

It's super effective!




In other news, springkink is going swimmingly. I'll troll shamelessly for comments later. >_>

What with the s_d debacle, I've been thinking about how integral fandom communities are to their chosen worlds.

On intellectual property rights, censorship, dreams, and Han Solo. )

Because it's my day off tomorrow and I have a little free time. ^_^

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudocanon.

There's a song on Overclocked Remix's FF7 album Voices of the Lifestream that reminds me, worryingly enough, of the romantic music from Princess Bride. Which is giving me some weird-ass mental images, let me tell you. Of course, it's a nice break from the unrelenting waves of angst the FFVII crowd has been beating me with lately. Hello. My name is Cloud Strife. You killed a metric buttload of people. Prepare to die.

*ahem*

So work today was... well. First, the water heater had broken last night, so the building resembled a kicked anthill while everybody dealt with the floodwaters. Meanwhile, there were still animals to be seen to, so there was me wrestling a half-dozen FRIGGIN HUGE DOGS in and out of their runs all by my onesie (seriously, guys, there was this one dog who outweighed me by about fifty pounds and he absolutely refused to go back inside. It took me fifteen minutes just to get him through the door, no exaggeration.). And let us not even mention the massive cat in whose Cheerios somebody evidently pissed, the massive fragrant piles of poo, and ah yes, the puddles everywhere. And did I mention we had no hot water? Yeah, the water heater had asploded, so.

Suffice to say it was not one of those days where I was done by ten and could sit around reading trashy paranormal romance novels the rest of the time.

Luckily, I have the day off tomorrow, so I can catch up on my writing! :D *peeks at next kinkfest prompt* ...oh god, motorcycle porn. Iiiii... think I'll start on that tomorrow. XD

I promised I would, and I did - designed a business-card-sized reminder to our fellow fans that hygiene is a splendid and wonderful thing. In large, friendly letters.

And here's Draft 1. Plain&simple design in whites and blues. )

Suggestions? Ideas? Should I stick to fanart? ;) (I love designing for geeks. They're such an accessible customer base.)

Mmmmh, Caspian's accent.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Saw Prince Caspian today. Enjoyed the heck out of it, of course. The filmmakers do a good job of making Narnia a living world that stays with you, just as the books did for me... but that's not without its own dangers:

Rodimus: *is pounced and bowled over, oof!* *struggles up and blinks at the massive lion holding him to the earth* What th-!
Aslan: *threatening growl* Why are you here?
Rodimus: It was an accident! I didn't mean to-
Aslan: Didn't you?
Rodimus: ...*guilty look at his fellow Alien Robots from the Stars* Yeah, I guess I did.

...And then Aslan lets him up and they go save Narnia or something.

But you see my dilemma. Right now I'm crossing Narnia with everything. Various Final Fantasies. Kingdom Hearts, of course. TMNT. Negima. Dresden Files. I mean, I shudder to think.

Harry: Jesus Christ, it's a lion.
Aslan: ...-_-

(Also, Reepicheep rocks my socks.)

Things in fandom that frost my shorts. There are a few.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Attention Transfandom:

The Decepticons are not 'misunderstood.' They are not trying to make the world a better place, they were not tragically abused and unloved as children, they are not oppressed by the mean ol' Autobots not rolling over and dying, and despite what Victory would have you believe, they are not out to provide for their wives and children. They are out to conquer the universe, and everything that isn't a Decepticon is either to be enslaved or destroyed toward that end. They are not, by any stretch, nice people, and the Power of Love will do precisely zippo to change that.

Which is not to say, of course, that they are or should be all one-dimensional characters. By all means, explore their individual motivations. Make them interesting, give them backstories, give them weird hobbies and show us different sides to the same person. But please, for the love of Primus, think about who you're writing. Megatron is not a fluffy huggle-bunny, and neither is he a fifteen-year-old girl.

Also, get a beta reader. Just sayin'.

Various and moogly things.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
It's been fandom dream after fandom dream lately.

First there was the one where I was in the Slums under Midgar, which was under siege by the Heartless. But that was okay, because Zack was there and he was looking out for me. I felt so secure that I could go shopping in Wall Market without worrying about getting my heart eaten. I got a nifty weapon-carrying belt. ^_^

Number two involved being mooglenapped by Beast Wars Megatron. I think it was sort of a hostage situation, since he wasn't doing me any mischief - mostly we just snarked at each other and he allowed me the run of a backyard with a pool. Then for some reason the pool got a whirlpool in it, and I had to find my way to freedom through there.

Then this afternoon was sort of a Kingdom Hearts/Lion King thing. Except it was in a factory facility with all these animals trapped in captivity everywhere. I was running around as a lion cub freeing everyone, and eventually I hooked up with Simba and Riku to go after the Bad Guys. I think a spaceship may have been involved.

That last dream may have been partly the fault of the raspberry martini I had during Mom's birthday dinner. (She adored the scarf I got her, yay! ^_^) Normally I only drink if I know I don't have to drive anywhere anytime soon, but I figured my parents would be able to tell if I was too impaired to drive home afterwards. As it was, Mom had us walk around a bit after lunch, which put me in the perfect place to get absolutely drenched by the rain right as I got to my car. XP That'll sober you right the hell up.

On the way home I saw a rainbow. :D

Also, I found a Spider-man book by Jim Butcher. MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN, I swear to God. *hearts the Holy Grail of Snark*

Anyhoo, a quizlet:



...Hee. ^_^ I also has Five Questions. Comment if you'd like some if your own - you know the drill.

Dear Megatron,

Two days without a peep from you and you decide to keep me up until one a.m. on a school night getting Optimus in bondage? This is not proper care of a moogle, my friend. I slept through half a lecture and it's all your fault.

Fortunately, two can play at that game. Chinese New Year is coming up; I'm going to play with Rattrap and Splinter, and you can just wait on my convenience for a while.

Sheesh.

Respectfully and standing-behind-a-blast-screeningly yours,
Pepper
